What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are a cosmetic procedure that can restore a youthful appearance by rejuvenating facial features. Dermal fillers are soft tissue fillers used to reduce wrinkles, marionette lines, and smile lines to create a more aesthetically pleasing look. These injectable treatments provide an alternative to surgical procedures, such as facelifts, and offer dramatic results with minimal risk of allergic reactions or other side effects. Dermal fillers are a non-invasive solution to facial aging and can be tailored to address individual needs with natural-looking and long-lasting results.
What Are Injectable Fillers Made Of?
Injectable fillers are a popular and effective facial rejuvenation option. Injectable fillers are made from natural or synthetic materials such as calcium hydroxylapatite, hyaluronic acid, collagen, and poly-L-lactic acid. These substances can be injected below the surface of the skin to add volume and restore lost facial contours. By filling in lines and wrinkles, injectable fillers can smooth out the appearance of deep wrinkles, reduce the appearance of facial lines, and even enhance the shape of your face. The effects of injectable filler depend on several factors such as skin type, age, lifestyle habits, and amount used. Your facial plastic surgeon will help you choose which filler is best for your individual needs.
Types of Dermal Fillers
Restylane injections are composed of hyaluronic acid filler material in a solution that is injected into the skin area from which you wish to remove excess tissue with either a syringe or a fine-gauge needle and then hardens. The body absorbs the filler material over days, gradually restoring the face contour to its natural state. Restylane® is most commonly used to smooth moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles such as nasolabial folds (the creases that extend from either side of the nose to under the mouth) and “parentheses” lines around the lips. It is also used to diminish the appearance of moderate-to-severe facial scars, including acne scars and surgery scars.
BOTOX is a trademark name for a purified protein called botulinum toxin type A that has been used in dermatology to treat fine lines and wrinkles, muscle overactivity disorders, migraine headaches, and other uses. BOTOX can be used to treat a wide range of medical conditions. For example, it is sometimes prescribed for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and blepharospasm (involuntary blinking). It has also been used to improve the appearance of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles such as “crow’s feet” around the eyes, vertical frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead creases, and lateral canthal folds (the excess skin tissue on either side of your outside corner of the eye), as well as lip lines associated with chronic sneering or excessive lip licking.
Juvederm is a dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body that helps support and maintain the skin. Juvederm is most commonly used to restore volume and fullness to your face that has been lost as a result of aging or facial injury. It is also used to enhance different areas of the face, including lips, cheeks, and chin areas for both men and women. For example, it can be used under the eyes to fill in “sunken” hollows (puffy circles) caused by age or illness. And it can be injected around the mouth to improve lip shape and create more definition around them.
Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable form of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), which is a biocompatible material made from the excess lactic acid produced by the body. Sculptra Aesthetic is injected directly into your skin to increase collagen production, resulting in slight swelling at the injection site and gradual correction of scars and folds. It can also be used to improve acne or chickenpox scars. Treatment with Sculptra Aesthetic takes weeks to months depending on how much correction you need as well as how much correction has previously occurred naturally in your skin during this period.
Juvederm Voluma XC
Juvederm Voluma is a volumizing facial injection that provides long-term correction of age-related volume loss in the cheek area, while also providing an improvement to the skin’s texture and tone. Juvéderm Voluma XC is indicated for lip augmentation and perioral (around lips) rejuvenation in adults over the age of 21. Juvéderm Volbella XC combines two aesthetic benefits into one syringe: hyaluronic acid filler material to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles as well as provide fullness for lip enhancement.
Kybella® is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance and profile of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin (submental fat), also called “double chin.” Patients can benefit from improvements in the contour of their neck and overall body profile. Results can be seen as early as one week. Kybella has a unique mechanism of action that destroys fat cells in the treated area.

What Injectable Fillers Can Treat
Injectable fillers are an excellent option for those looking to achieve facial harmony and improve their appearance. These cosmetic fillers can be used to improve the treatment plan for a wide range of conditions, including wrinkles, lines, creases, lip lines, deep wrinkles, and facial volume loss.
Facial harmony is achieved when the face is balanced in terms of shape and contour. With facial aging, our faces lose volume which can cause a hollowed-out appearance. Injectable fillers help restore the lost volume to create a more youthful look. Fillers can also address fine lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth as well as vertical lip lines for enhanced definition and contour of lips.
For deeper wrinkles or creases that appear with age or due to sun damage, hyaluronic acid fillers are often used to smooth skin quality as they help draw moisture into the skin while supporting collagen production. Juvederm Voluma XC combines two aesthetic benefits into one syringe: hyaluronic acid filler material to smooth moderate to severe wrinkles as well as provide fullness for lip enhancement. Sculptra Aesthetic is an injectable form of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) that helps increase collagen production in the area it’s injected into for improved skin texture and tone.
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Dermal fillers work by restoring lost volume and shape to the face. They can also address fine lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth as well as vertical lip lines for enhanced definition and contour of lips. Dermal fillers use a variety of techniques to enter the skin and get to the desired area. These techniques include injection (intradermal or subcutaneous), topical application (cream, gel, or patch), or laser therapy.
Recovery from Dermal Fillers treatment
Recovery from dermal filler treatment involves allowing time for the facial tissues to adjust to the new volume and for collagen growth to occur to maintain a smoother appearance. Patients must follow the instructions of their board-certified plastic surgeon, as proper technique and facial assessment are key to achieving natural looking results.
Hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite fillers are commonly used during aesthetic procedures as they provide lasting rejuvenation with minimal discomfort. These fillers work by providing natural volume beneath the skin’s surface to smooth away wrinkles, folds, and other signs of aging. Treatment typically takes only a few minutes, depending on the area being treated, and recovery time can range from a few days to a week or more.
Patients who receive facial treatments with dermal fillers should avoid sun exposure and strenuous exercise to ensure optimal results from their cosmetic treatment. During recovery time, it is also important to follow any additional instructions provided by your board-certified plastic surgeon regarding facial care such as using sunscreen or wearing protective clothing while outside. Following these steps will help ensure that your results are long-lasting and desirable.
